When I was doling out the Your Video Store Shelf awards at the beginning of 2004 for the 2003 year, I named Spartan Entertainment the worst direct-to-video distributor of the year for many reasons.

Bloodthirst: Legend of the Chupacabras is one of them.

Bloodthirst is a horrifyingly bad movie. Unlike Game Over, which despite the huge amount of criticisms can be half enjoyed in a “so terrible it’s good” way, Bloodthirst is just terrible. As per the usual with this industry, the artwork is a huge lie, with nothing even resembling that creature being presented in the movie.

Essentially, goats and eventually people begin to show up all around a sleepy Arizona town drained of their blood. Of course, there’s a crazy old lady who is all set to talk about how it was a chupacabra, and soon enough, we also learn about how the townspeople had successfully killed it off fifty years before. Ohh yeah, there’s a gold map, vampires, a hunter, newspaper reporters, and an alcoholic too.

Obviously filmed on a camcorder with a micro budget, Bloodthirst is absolute junk. Not only does the writing and directing suck, but it completely lacks any gore or skin to boot.

What’s kind of funny is that, according to Tanya York, York Entertainment had already finished their chupacabra movie (El Chupacabra) at the same time this was released. By the time York’s film came out at the end of 2003, no one was interested, likely because Spartan’s was so bad. “There were big hopes in the Latino community, but they weren’t interested. The rest of world wasn’t either.” As a result, the planned El Chupacabra 2, which they tried to pre-sell to various international territories before finally giving up, didn’t happen.

I don’t even think Brain Damage Films would have picked this thing up.

In plain English, that means stay far away.

Shockingly, there’s a sequel out there that was released by Silver Nitrate (Spartan’s new name) earlier this year, but good luck finding it. Hell, I can’t even get the company to send it to me.
DVD: Barebones.
